Pro7 inks deal with Dick de Rijk

German commercial broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 has inked an exclusive production and distribution deal with Deal or No Deal creator Dick de Rijk.

The German net will have exclusive access to former Endemol creative exec de Rijk’s formats and developments and these formats will subsequently be distributed internationally by the company’s sales arm SevenOne International.

De Rijk, who also created Set For Life and Show Me The Money, stepped down as international creative partner at Endemol in July.

The move is significant for ProSiebenSat.1, which will benefit from De Rijk’s future projects on its network as well as the boost for its international distribution arm.
